Northeastern utilities offer rebates for installation of Lighting Science Group's LED bulbs and fixtures

Date Announced: 29 Jul 2010

Satellite Beach, Florida – To accelerate the installation of ultra-efficient LED lighting, utilities under the Mass Save Program are now offering Northeast customers rebates for the installation of Lighting Science Group’s new DEFINITY line of LED bulbs, PROLIFIC Series streetlights and Shoebox fixtures. Chosen as a result of their rigorous LM-79 performance testing, Lighting Science Group’s ultra-efficient LED lamps and fixtures have outstanding light quality, no mercury and very long life-spans. The incentives are being provided for retrofit, new construction and custom applications through Cape Light Compact, National Grid, NSTAR, Unitil, and Western Massachusetts Electric Company and cover all of Massachusetts and parts of New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, and Rhode Island.

“With rising energy costs in the Northeast, communities are looking for ways save energy—the installation of Lighting Science Group’s LED bulbs and fixtures can save businesses thousands of dollars in maintenance, replacement and energy cost,” said Zach Gibler, Chief Executive Officer of Lighting Science Group. “Commercial and industrial customers in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, and Rhode Island now have the freedom to switch to an environmentally friendly and energy efficient lighting solution without sacrificing light quality and at little to no cost,” said Gibler.

Built in the USA, the ultra-efficient DEFINITY LED line includes A19, PAR38, PAR30, PAR20, MR16, and G25 bulb types that are all dimmable and will last nearly 20 years. Unlike CFLs, the DEFINITY LED bulbs contain no mercury, are completely recyclable, are instant on, and offer outstanding light quality. Furthermore, independent laboratory testing results show that the DEFINITY LED bulbs outperform competing products on the market.

The PROLIFIC series LED street lights bring into balance the need to responsibly illuminate the community’s roadways while reducing energy consumption and lowering maintenance costs. Compared with traditional HID street lights, the PROLIFIC series street lights are at least 50% more efficient, provide a more uniform light distribution and increased light levels, and will save the customers thousands of dollars in energy and maintenance cost over the life of the fixtures. Furthermore, the maintenance-friendly PROLIFIC LED technology eliminates costly re-lamping and re-ballasting of HID street lights and direct line wiring is used in place of starters and ballasts to further reduce traditional maintenance issues.

Lighting Science Group’s ultra-efficient area light fixture, ShoeBox, is a versatile and distinct LED-based light fixture that provides businesses unlimited options to illuminate and enhance architecture for exterior area lighting applications. Clean, sophisticated lines blend seamlessly with architectural elements creating glare free, low maintenance light for general illumination needs. The low footprint aluminum fixture has a wide range power supply and is easy to install, since no special ballast or voltage source is required.
